Matthew Irunnaya Ezea

Bd. 106, 2013, 368 S., 39.90 EUR, 39.90 CHF, br., ISBN 978-3-643-90321-1
Owing to many ills which have enveloped the world of work, the ILO came up with a concept: decent work. This work sets out to examine the extent to which this concept is founded on the basic principle that in labour it is man who comes first, a principle that has been clearly brought out by Christian social ethics.
Nigeria - having a great share of socio-economic and other woes - parades a world of work that is caught up in the mud of problems. This work attempts to identify and analyse them with a view to finding solutions based on the said concept. The book argues that decent work is a vital desideratum and remedy to the mosaic of socio-economic ills that plague a nation that is expected to play a leading role in Africa.
